  • Age of Anxiety, Theby Mark Galeotti

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 51.95

    The geography of Russia -- vast, unwieldy, exposed -- and her tragic history of foreign invasion have created an overriding sense of military vulnerability amongst her leaders that, after the horrors of the Second World War, amounted almost to paranoia. This important study of the years since Brezhnev shows how this obsession with national security... more...

    Cultural diversity - the multitude of different lifestyles that are not necessarily based on ethnic culture - is a catchphrase increasingly used in place of multiculturalism and in conjunction with globalization.

    Lexington Books 2009; US$ 89.99

    Grand Theater examines bureaucracy not as a readily identifiable structure, which it certainly was, but rather as a process of day-to-day operation. Thus it is concerned with how agencies of both the Communist Party and the state apparatus not only implemented directives from above but also responded to perceived successes and failures, chose to produce,... more...
